  • Difference: Measuring how the organization’s change and transformation has made a difference in the lives of the users, communities, and even the society it supports.

  • Uniqueness: Judging the uniqueness and distinct vision for the project showing innovation and originality that hasn’t been seen or heard of before.

Submissions will be accepted until Nov. 8, 2017, and will be evaluated by a panel of business and open source technology experts including Ashesh Badani, vice president and general manager, OpenShift; Swapnil Bhartiya, journalist; Marco Bill-Peter, vice president, Customer Experience and Engagement; Dietmar Fauser, vice president, Architecture, Quality and Governance, Amadeus; Sean Michael Kerner, senior editor, eWeek; Christopher Rommel, executive vice president, IoT and Embedded Technology, VDC Research; and Chris Wright, vice president and chief technologist, Office of Technology, Red Hat.
